​​​​​​​Honour in Classical Greece

​​​​​​​'Honour in Classical Greece: esteem, status, identity, and society in ancient Greek literature, life, and thought' is a Horizon 2020-EU.1.1 Excellent Science project funded by the European Research Council. This five-year project will run from 2018 to 2022. 

Using the findings of contemporary sociology and philosophy, with contributions from other disciplines from economics to literary studies, cognitive linguistics, and psychology, Honour in Classical Greece will lead to a root and branch transformation of the idées fixes that still mould the understanding of honour (Greek timê) in our ancient Greek sources.
